It is two weeks ago when I arrived in Sri Lanka. Since then I did nothing more than sitting by the beachside and watching waves. I know it sounds boring but I just wanted it in this way. I needed some time to get my regular business out of minds and sort private life. Imade many minds about me, my life, my planes and the future. Also wanted to see how C.’s business is runninng. It is very hard to start a little business down there because for everything you want to fix you need a straw man. And a dummy like this is hard to find, in fact to find someone you can trust is very hard. But finally we found a person we hope we can trust to. Right now we plan to buy a house and start running a little guest house with a little restaurant. We also looked some houses and finally found the ideal place.
After all I had a real good time here, especially at Christmas eve. They are not really into celebrating this day but for the western guests they decorated the beach with lights and placed some trees on the beach. In the evening they booked a DJ for party Normally they play some Techno and House. Because I am very close to the owener of the beachbar I got the chance to use the equipment for an hour and play some of my tracks. I offered them a mix of reggae, dub, balearic and some of Drew’s dance tracks as well. Was funny to do this again.
May all of you have a good start into the new year and stay well.
